Seven Years in Ecuador--Yippee!!!

From the moment we landed in Quito, Oct 3, 2007, we never questioned our decision to buy one way tickets, and move to Ecuador.

Every day has been filled with excitement and adventure.

Our adopted--extended, Ecuadorian family has been a joy, providing us with never-ending kindness and readiness to help in every way!

The beauty of the changing ocean waves, and the wonderful sandy beach,  keep us humbled at the power of Mother Nature.

We look forward to many more years in this beautiful country!!!


A couple of hours after we took the above photo, we were treated to a wonderful rolling sunset...almost as if Mama Natura was smiling back!

Seven years already! Wow! You guys live in paradise and have made such a difference in your community, you should both get medals!
Still read your blog when a new post appears.

We wish you another seven happy years on the beach!

Congratulations to two wonderful friends. It is funny how fast time goes by when you are having fun.

7 years already! Seems just like yesterday when we first were planning our South American adventure together.
We're coming up on 6 years, right behind you. Who would have thought...
We share your warm feelings for this Country and our futures here.
Love, R/N

Congratulations on 7 years in paradise! While I haven't been following your blog for 7 years I have read every post since I did find it a few years ago.

Next month my wife and I will take our first step towards finding our version of ex-pat paradise when we travel to Cancun, Mexico for an IL conference.

Thank you for inspiring us to dream and now take that first step.

Another belated congratulations to you both!! 7 amazing years and much more to come. Your expectations when you moved to Ecuador, I am sure, have been surpassed many times over. So happy for you both. Hugs from us and love to you .. Lynn and Chuck
